Story definitely sounds intriguing, and it has Christina Hendricks too.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Just finished watching the Exorcist 3 with George C Scott. Wow, this day I can't figure out how anyone can claim that this is a bad movie. In many ways it tops the original for me, and it's light-years better than the second movie. E3 is the very epitome of underrated.

Arnie learned a long time ago the secret to success. He said himself, watching Clint Eastwood. Short but sweet catchphrases, that's the key. The simple one liners are the most memorable, and with Arn's unmistakable accent, it worked wonders for him. Oh, and he's a badass in almost every movie he's in, that also helps.

I watched it for the second time last night and damn it is very, very good. Highly recommended.
Yeah, loved it. Great film.

Of all the horror movies I've seen, it has one of the handful of scenes that legitimately startled me.

Which one would that be? For me there's a few, but I know that the Hedge Clipper scene is notoriously scary.

I might be a little biased though, I loved the book in which the movie was based on (it was originally supposed to be called Legion like the book, but they gave it the Exorcist name for better marketability). The problem is that people go into it expecting the Exorcist, and it's very disconnected from the original plot. Legion really is it's own thing.

Plus, it's one of the only 2 movies William Blatty actually directed, and i'm a HUUUUUUUGE fan of his first movie "The Ninth Configuration". E3 is much in the same style as TNC with it's dreamlike sequences and esoteric undertones, and Blatty even brings back some of the actors.

I might like TNC a bit more than E3, but they're both top notch psychological horror from an absolute master of his craft.

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

I guess it's the hedge clipper scene? There is a beheading off camera lol. It's where nothing is going on and then BAM.

Here it is. It's just that up until this point in the movie, it was going very slow. That's mostly what got me, and what probably gets everyone.

Ah man, always gets to me for the exact reason you mentioned, the contrast of utter calmness with sudden tention (dat sound!)

Let's not forget this unforgettable performance by Brad Dourif

Re: General Movie Discussion Part II

Brilliant scene. The crawling on ceiling scene is great too. Definitely agree that it's a very underrated film.

Has anyone here seen The Bicycle Thieves? Planning on watching it this week at some point. Obviously heard nothing but great things. blarg I'm guessing you've seen it?
